Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Faceless Apparitions of Vyolynce is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by That Guy with a fair hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 26.058 billion Vyos love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowlands. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vyolyncian economy, worth a remarkable 6,233 trillion souls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 239,229 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The space program has been scrapped in order to focus on more terrestrial pursuits, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Shadowlands for fear of causing a fuss, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyolynce's national animal is the shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Vyolynce is ranked 3rd in Darkest Corners of the Mind and 124,490th in the world for Best Weather, with -310 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
